  1. Compact Soft Starter available as Module Only or in NEMA 1 / 12 Enclosure

    Flexibility of Control
    Multiple ramp profiles, Pump-Flex Decel and advanced motor protection make the VMX Series soft starter adaptable to a wide variety of AC motor applications... no need for add-on modules or costly auxiliary devices.

    Compact packaging has become critical in more and more electrical installations. The VMX Series meets this need without compromising features and ratings. By using a highly engineered packaging design and the latest generation microprocessor, all the control and protection features you need are in the VMX Series. Narrow and shallow dimensions are perfect for integrating the VMX Series into motor control centers (MCCs), pump control panels, and retrofit starter enclosures.

    Integral Bypass Contactors are standard on all sizes and provide maximum efficiency of panel space while maintaining the Motortronics reputation for being able to soft start most any load. The VMX Series is the only fully integrated, compact, world-class design offering uncompromised power and control capabilities.
